  25. “Talk About Art” What is an artist’s residency?

    Comments Off on “Talk About Art” What is an artist’s residency?

    The GAAC AIR Collection exhibition also includes two related programs: Friday, November 9: Glen Arbor painter Harvey Gordon, a past chairperson of the AIR
    Committee, offers “A Radical Perspective of Art,” a Brown Bag art history presentation at 12 noon. This event is free and open to the public.

    Sunday, November 11: What is an artist’s residency? A panel of working artists who have all enjoyed artists’  residencies — Margo Burian, Lori Feldpausch and Joan Richmond — talk about how an artist’s residency figures into a studio practice. Presented as part of the “Talk About Art” series. 2 pm in the GAAC gallery. No charge.

    The Glen Arbor Arts Center spotlights its permanent collection of works by more than 40 artists who have enjoyed a two-week residency in the GAAC’s Artist-in-Residence [AIR] program. The exhibition runs November 9 – December 21 at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

    Artists who enjoy a residency in the AIR program often make a gift of work to the GAAC at the end of their stay. It is a practice that was initiated more than a decade ago, and has allowed the GAAC to build a permanent collection and a record of AIRs’ work. This program of artists’ residencies began in the 1990s at the initiation of the late Suzanne Wilson, one of the GAAC’s
    founders. Wilson handpicked visual artists for the program, and found area friends to house them. Today, a committee of seven volunteers administer the program. The GAAC offers seven residencies each year from May to October. A selection of work by Suzanne Wilson will also be part of this exhibition.

    For more information about these activities, go to GlenArborArt and click on EVENTS. In November and December, the GAAC is open Monday through Friday 9 am – 3:30 pm, and noon
    – 4 pm on Sundays.

  32. The Barn Raisers, A Documentary screening

    Comments Off on The Barn Raisers, A Documentary screening

    “The Barn Raisers,” a documentary film telling the story of Midwestern barns, will be screened Friday, October 19, 7 pm at the Glen Arbor Arts Center, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

    The 2017 documentary examines barns through the lens of architecture. What do barn settings, styles, methods and materials tell us about the people who built them, the life they lived, and the role of these vanishing country cathedrals played in the settling and building of a growing nation? Discussion following the documentary will be conducted by Stephen Stier, preservation builder, barnwright and Vice-President of Michigan Barn Preservation Network.

    “The Barn Raiser” is free, and offered in conjunction with the GAAC’s exhibition agriCULTURE: Barnyards and Farmscapes. The exhibition receives partial support from the Michigan Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities. agriCULTURE is on display through November 1.
